Yea it's stupid cause every time something escalates beyond me I get in shit for it.
I mean I have the authority to give him his jacket for free if that's what it takes to keep him happy but in principle it's not fair to all the customers that are understanding and are not asshole.
I think the offer I gave him is more than fair and I decided to stand my ground.

We did that for a couple of customers. Managers decided to bend over and kept them as a customer. Only leads to be more assholes so in the end we send them letters that we no longer wants them as our customers. Send the letters in and disconnected their services. From then on managements learn not to bend backwards for these assholes. They are just not worth the time and effort.

Props for standing your ground, so many people don't seem to realize that the kind of customers you have to bend over backwards to keep aren't the customers you want anyways, most of the time they never enter that store again.

Walked into a chocolate shop last night and a couple at the counter were having fit. Apparently two days before she had called to ask if they had a certain flavour in stock and was told yes.

Two days later when she showed up they didn't have as many chocolates as she wanted she was pissed. She rented a car.....rented car to buy chocolates at a store you can get to by skytrain. The staff were helpful enough to call another store close by but she said she couldn't get there. Huge hissy fit that someone lied to her. How could they lie to her. What kind of store....blah blah blah.

Threw chocolates on the way out.

The other customer in the store and I had a very good laugh and were given free chocolates.

WTF! She called 2 days ago. And they didn't lie because 2 days ago they did have the flavor she wanted. What does she expect she went 2 days after she made the call.

Obviously she expects the world to stand still until she arrives.

Just think about how dumb the average person is and realize that half the world is dumber than that.

The rage that returns when I think about shitty customers back during the day when I was working at McDonalds. Good thing no matter how mad I was, I wasn't a piece of shit that fucked with your food.

The best is when another customer tells them off for you. Back in the glory days of Cambodian Fire again I had some walnut come in who wanted a hitch for the front of his truck. The problem was we only had listings for rear hitches since hardly anyone wants front ones, and since hitches were special order items you had to pay before we would order it. I tried to explain this all to him and tell him to talk to the specialty truck accessory place in town but the guy was convinced that all hitches are the same and that I could somehow order him one. Finally the customer behind him got tired of this guy going in circles and told him to stop being so stupid and fuck off. To date it's still one of the greatest things I've seen happen in a store.

They call back a few days later and wants that appotiment, well is gone already and they sounded so surprise...... Had to explain to them appoitments are first come first serve if you didn't book it then, too bad so sad. Then they get angry and demanded we give them one or they want to talk to a supervisor. Funny thing is when they got transfer and we play them the call the play days or week ago they were clearly notify that appoitments are first come first serve.

I get that in my place of work a lot (including family members). They call, ask if we have a tire in stock. Then just pop in and expect to get tires installed like. Week later. Bruh, those tires are on sale and literally every German vehicle runs 225/45/17. What do you expect????

Or when a member comes in for some 20" tires and we don't stock them (they are special order) and get mad we don't accommodate that one version of that one vehicle from that one manufacturer.

OR when a BMW x6m buys tires online but only gets the 18's instead of huge ass 335/30/20 or whatever. And they get pissed because online it said 18's would woke (bought cuz they are cheaper than huge 20's) and you have to explain that not every x6 comes with the same tire size yadda yadda yadda.... But we're the ones in the wrong. Faaaack offfffff

That's the thing, you're aware that you don't know and therefore wouldn't go buying stuff willy nilly and then getting mad when it doesn't fit.

The best is when the racist shitbaggery is coming from someone who is an immigrant themselves. I had to work with this prick that kept complaining about immigrants who bring over family members with them that don't work, yet he's an immigrant whose fucking wife doesn't work and he only has one kid

Yup there are a lot of racist Albertans. ..but the really racist and ignorant ones I find are people from the maritimes. ..especially Newfies. A lot of times it's not like racisim in a hatred sort of way but rather just ignorant.
